Learners evaluate how well others describe their points of view in a workplace problem-solving situation. They then apply techniques for explaining their points of view as well as for gaining understanding of others' perspectives. This learning object contains audio.
In a series of three interactive exercises, learners explore the relationship between process cycle time and defect detection, and between process cyle time and smaller batch sizes. The techniques of lean/JIT are applied to achieve the continuous improvement (kaizen) goal of reducing inventory by pursuing one-piece flow.
